Tizen Source Code Released

der_alte Requires Oracle Java (71 comments)

No, I'm not going to even try to install that piece of crap. It's a shame that after so many years the OpenJDK is still so useless. In this state of affairs, for me Java is dead and buried. In all respects.

Ask Slashdot: How To Monitor Your Own Bandwidth Usage?

der_alte Mikrotik (319 comments)

I'm very happy using Mikrotik (mikrotik.com) products. You can buy a ~49$ license and install their software -RouterOS, a Linux derivative- on an old PC. You can also get one of their hardware products (routerboard.com), excellent choice if you care about power consumption. I highly recommend the RB750G wich is a small SOHO router in a nice plastic case. With RouterOS you can do a whole lot of interesting things, monitoring bandwidth usage is just one of these things.

F/OSS Flat-File Database?

der_alte Qt4 + SQLite3 (702 comments)

A statically linked app written in C++, with Trolltech's Qt4.4 + SQLite3 support will do the trick. If the statically linked binary results too big, just shrink it with UPX, or install the dynamically linked dlls with the app.

Internet Censorship in Paraguay

der_alte der_alte writes  |  more than 6 years ago

der_alte writes "A few days to presidential elections in Paraguay, the official party at government began dns-hijacking sistematically a number of websites they consider "objectionable content". Those sites are run by another political party and contains mainly strong criticism to well known politicians involved in embarrasing corruption acts.
The official party, the Partido Colorado (ANR), had doomed this little country since 1954, and currently have little chance of continuing in the power without resorting to massive electoral fraud.
The government has a monopoly on Internet fiber access in Paraguay, and there's no practicable way to reach the outside world without passing trough the COPACO infraestructure, wich is the statal telecomunications company. As a side note, the Internet access in Paraguay is probably the most expensive in the region, with a penetration of roughly 4% and a population of 6 million people.
Currently there are reports of four hijacked domains: www.partidocolorado.org and www.victorbogado.com (diverted to www.anr.org.py), www.bastacarajo.com and www.patriaquerida.org (diverted to porn sites).
The issue was notified to the ICANN and other authorities."
